ASTOUNDING VIEW FROM YOUR COMPLETELY RENOVATED STUDIO

East End Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2) close to the beach; spectacular views are immediate.

Our sweet Sapphire Village studio, with its almost 180* view of the Caribbean Sea, was COMPLETELY RENOVATED, stem to stern, in the fall of 2010. We replaced it all - ceilings, ceiling fans, furniture, cabinets, bathroom, kitchen, linens, you name it! - it's ALL NEW, fresh, squeaky clean and modern. We personally chose the furnishings at Hickory Furniture Mart in NC and had it all shipped down. Now we're SHIP SHAPE and ready for you!

Make sure you know the difference between Sapphire Village Condominiums and Sapphire Beach Resort. Our breezy studio is on top of the hill in the Barbados building, between two pools, right above the NEW Sapphire Grill at 6700 Sapphire Village Condos (on Smith Bay Road, Red Hook), not in the Resort.

CHECK THE CALENDAR - we keep it current. AND... if you don't see the dates that you want to come, please check www.vrbo.com/477709, another one of our condos.

{Please note that some of our information, such as 'Why We Chose Sapphire Village,' and 'Unique Benefits of this Studio' may not fully open on your iPad or mobile device.}

Welcome! Come, refresh yourself on gorgeous St Thomas!

We married seven years ago and live in Sapphire Village part time. When 'on island' we attend Calvary Baptist Church in Charlotte Amalie or Community Baptist, across from Sugar Bay Resort. We like to rise early to enjoy the beach, dine very well, and always marvel at the beautiful view!

John McLeod purchased this studio in 2010

We bought this studio to share with family and friends. We love meeting the locals and soaking up the lovely Caribbean accent! Everyone is so friendly and ready to help you find your way around.

John likes to do his walking and swimming at dawn and Cathryn loves to meet friends and shop in Red Hook. We both enjoy photography excursions to St John, Tortola and Virgin Gorda. Bring your passport for travels to the British Virgin Islands!

We know you'll love Sapphire Village as much as we do.

We have one of the VERY BEST views on all of St Thomas, evidenced by the fact that island tour drivers always stop near the Sapphire Village entrance to let oogling visitors take a few million pictures!

Sapphire Village Condominiums is a secure, gated community with two pools maintained daily, plus easy access to beaches, shopping, and restaurants.

Hop on a safari (an open-air taxi) for a dollar ride to Red Hook or Tutu Park Mall for all your provisions. Two dollars will buy your hilly ride to Charlotte Amalie - the heart of town on colorful St Thomas - gateway to all the tourist attractions dangled before you.

Sapphire Marina offers day sailing, jet-skiing, deep-sea fishing and sunset tours.

Waiters in beach attire will happily deliver lunch and drinks to you right on the beach, from Banana Cabana or Sapphire Grill!

Your studio balcony faces northeast, so it's always draped with pleasing indirect sunlight.. perfect for morning coffees, watching seagulls and sailboats glide gracefully over clear blue waters, and stunning Caribbean sunsets. Quite often you can hear the wind whistling low through sailboat masts in the marina.

This is the most attractive studio in all of Sapphire Village: uncluttered, clean, fresh.. 'easy on the eyes.'

You might not want to leave!

Good times had by all

  • 5 of 5
Having the condo as a home base to our stay was fantastic. The apt had everything we needed and then some. We were pleasantly surprised to find a few extras that really added to the comfort of our stay. Loved having such an equipped kitchen(saving $$ on meals), beach chairs, snorkel equipment, access to bbq on the grounds and a choice of 2 beautiful pools to jump in after a long day at the beach. We enjoyed an amazing view and breakfast every morning on the terrace. We can't wait to stay here again.

GREAT LOCATION, EXCELLENT VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
My fiance Dave and I just spent one week in this cozy studio condo. The location of the condo is the best on the island. We rented a car and after driving around and exploring many of the beaches we concluded that Sapphire beach is the tops. While snorkeling we saw manta rays, sea turtles and an abundance of colorful fish. It is also a beach that is not invaded by the cruise ship passengers. The Condo is located just a short drive from Red Hook where you can find a variety of restaurants or catch the ferry to St. Johns.
The Condo itself is accurately reflected in the photos. It was clean and well maintained. John the owner, was very accommodating and responsive to our needs by email.
Yes, I do recommend this property/location to my family and friends. Dave and I look forward to returning when our travels take us back to St. Thomas.

Just a note: This condo sits on top of the hill and there is about a six minute walk down to the beach. There is a bit of an incline and may not be suitable for the physically challenged.

this condo is a perfect getaway for two at idyllic sapphire beach. the view from the balcony is breathtaking with an unobstructed view of the caribbean with it's many nearby islands including st. johns, tortola and the british v.i. the nearby beach was just a short walk which we enjoyed. the water was pristine with beautiful coral, and all sorts of underwater wildlife. a snorkelers dream! john the owner was very helpful with advice regarding transportation, local attractions etc., and was quick to answer by e-mail any questions. there is so much to do and see in st. thomas and the surrounding islands we wished we could have stayed longer. i would definitely stay there again.

Gorgeous View!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying here while at Sapphire Beach. The studio is clean and has everything you need - even beach chairs to take down to the beach. While the walk to and from the beach was a little annoying (mostly because it was uphill!), the view when waking up every morning was priceless! Also it was super close to the main entrance and street, which made it easy to catch the dollar taxis. Would definitely recommend it and stay here again!

Owner's Response: View from the top of the Village out to the U.S. and British Virgin islands, comes with a little walk down to the beach. Walking back up is not as fun as walking down, but it's worth the effort especially when you are back up on the balcony!

Splendid Studio!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned yesterday from a 15-day stay in this lovely Sapphire Village condo. My husband and I both felt we could have stayed for months in this sunny space as the owners have furnished it with everything we needed for lounging, cooking, dining and living in peace. The furnishings especially suit the place, are comfortable and pristine, and do not distract from the stunning perfection of the view.
Ah, yes, the view: breathtaking. At your feet, the marina, fun to watch the boats coming and going; out beyond, the beach, the aqua water, the islands, birds and sky. Gorgeous. The beach is an easy downhill walk, and we loved snorkeling there over the reef, and walking in the mornings around the attractive property. One evening we had a very pleasant dinner at the Sunset Grille, just down the hill from the condo. Our condo and the surrounding complex are very clean and well maintained by very friendly and accommodating staff. We will certainly return and would very much want to stay in this studio- all I would change is that I will want to stay longer- much longer!

A room with a view!

  • 5 of 5
The studio was everything I had expected and more. The pictures online did not do the room justice. The view is bigger than life, the room was clean, well put together as well as tastfully decorated. All the appliances worked and sleeping with the sliding door open was a bounus. It made for a great visit.
